    Pros

    If you get deployed into a good project, chances are you'll be working 12-13 hours daily but high learning curve with great responsibilities

    Cons

    If you get deployed in a support or maintenance project , you are tied and can't do anything other than repetitive and redundant work .

    Advice to Management

    The resource management team is absolutely pathetic and of no use , they wouldn't even bother to reply you and if asked for help they will never ever help you plus sometimes they can say some harsh words as well which are nowhere near in the acceptable limits .
